The unspoiled northernmost part of the Costa Brava is a well-kept secret, and makes an ideal region for a week of leisurely discovery on foot, with plenty of time for dips in the sea. Discover hidden coves, shady pinewoods, medieval Begur, and a regional cuisine which is justly renowned throughout Spain. The benevolent climate ensures many warm, sunny days from spring through to autumn, while the hotels offer high standards of accommodation.
This gentle route, a perfect first walking holiday, shows to the full the magnificent contrasts of this part of the Costa Brava: medieval villages and pine-clad hills, small, quiet coves and the wide, sandy beaches for which the area is renowned. There are plenty of opportunities to relax by the sea and to linger over lunch at an authentic restaurant, just two of the many highlights of the holiday. Indeed, the region is justly famed throughout Spain for its gastronomy, with delicious fish specialities. Even more of surprise, perhaps, is the delightful selection of high-quality, family-run hotels, most of which have a pool.
